Departmental Emergency Operations Center
The DEOC is focused on operational and supportive efforts of the incidents impacting ADOT. The ADOT DEOC may be activated in support of the State Emergency Operations Center or on its own.
Examples of scenarios that would cause the ADOT DEOC to activate:
- Large scale coordination of a single or multiple related incidents (wildfires, major roadway infrastructure failure, large area evacuations, etc.),
- Outage of ADOT facilities lasting an extended period of time causing interruption or relocation of mission critical functions,
- Planned events where ADOT resources will need high level coordination and support, and/or
- Other incidences where demand on ADOT personnel and property calls for the EOC support infrastructure.
